A Life at See by Elisa Mand and Bente Rohde
There are not many of them left – the original seamen. Heiko, Gill and Stephan are some of the few remaining crab fishermen who fight on their cutter “Damkerort” for their livelihood, their family on land and above all for absolute freedom at sea. However, more and more often their nets remain empty and the business becomes unprofitable. The work requires hard life decisions. The film portrays an intimate insight into the often blocked emotional world of three Büsumer crab fishermen.

Elements of a Journey: Antoni Tàpies by James Scott
Elements of a Journey: Antoni Tàpies is an experimental documentary focusing on the legacy of Antoni Tàpies, the 20th-century Catalan painter and sculptor. The film, which follows the artist as he grows up during the Franco dictatorship, is strongly relevant to the divisive politics of today. Its goal is to engage viewers through together, Tapies’ story and his art. It explores how artists navigate complex journeys; spiritual, political, and that of the everyday. Tàpies stood out in his lifetime, not only as a major painter but also as the voice of freedom and hope for a generation at the time of a dark and painful era in Spain.
Night Ride from LA by Martin Gerigk
‘Night Ride from LA’ is based on a real car ride at night from downtown LA to the desert near Palm Springs a few years ago. The footage was taken from the car by continually shooting single long exposure photos to document the ride of about two hours without any break. This technique condensed the whole trip to a flickering twirl of time-stretched movements and night light graffiti causing a kind of psychedelic trance. A love letter to the energy and vibe of the Californian way of life.
